I'm going to be starting at the weekend too  Smiley

I've gathered plenty of ideas, and I've got a mini stash of papers that I'm going to work into my inchies some where - just because I like them!!


a newbie question about inchies - do you put anything on the back? like a very reduced version of what goes on the back of atc's?

i put my username, the date, and my signature on the back of mine. this blog post shows the inchies i made, as well as the back - http://craftydame.blogspot.com/search/label/inchies

i made one back, scanned it, and then printed and cut out 50 of them. much easier on my hand than signing them all!

I was also wondering how I can mount the inchies in a fram, probably with amy butler paper for the background, and be able to change them in and out as I get more and more. I was looking at this rubber cement thing, and it says you can do a wet mount, which I guess isn't as permanent, and wondered if that meant it always isn't permanent, or if after it does dry it becomes permanent. Help?

Good question.  I want to do something similar, but just thought I would figure something out when that time comes.  I'm thinking I am just going to do a black background.  We'll see.


I had a brainstorm last night as I was searching through my junk drawer, useing the poster tack stuff( stuff that looks like chewing gum, easy to find in the office supplies section and pretty cheap too) to temporarily mount the inchies onto a backing. I have only had the stuff leave a little bit of a stain on one fancy paper and it was only like an oil spot. It is supposed to be really safe for most papers. Just a thought! Hopefully it will help!

I have a couple of good (I think) ideas, but I have to finish one more project that goes out Friday before I can start.  Hopefully I'll have a lot of time this weekend to play around with things and see if my ideas are as good as I think they are.  Everything always looks better in my head!

Ok, so noob question, but will 140lb watercolor paper be sturdy enough, or should i back them with something else as well? They seem sturdy, but i just don't know exactly HOW sturdy they should be.
